New Delhi, Aug 23 (IANS): Cornered on the issue of corruption, the government has called an all-party meeting on Wednesday afternoon to develop a consensus on the issues involved in the Lokpal Bill.

Sources from various political parties Tuesday said the government had convened a meeting at 3.30 pm.

Other sources said that the government was looking at the possibility of incorporating some of Anna Hazare's demands but would rather have a dialogue with other political parties for a wider political consensus.

Confirming the meeting, Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid said that the government was looking for solutions.

"We are working for a solution. Whenever there is an incident that may (lead to) aggression or disturb peace or (cause) any other worry, a solution should be arrived at," Khurshid told reporters outside Parliament. "Political parties, including those in the opposition, should make an effort to find a solution," he said.

The meeting has been called as Anna Hazare's fast for against government's Lokpal bill entered the eighth day on Tuesday.
